Black Bean, Sweet Potato, Quinoa Chili


I was in the mood for chili but something different then our normal taco chili recipe and this TOTALLY was worth the extra chopping. So delicious and it made a ton. It's getting into those cold months and our rainy season here in Hawaii. This recipe will for sure be made again. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
